Happy Jesus' Birthday

Got home just before Santa, a fairly quiet night in the cab but still added $150 to the Christmas coffers. The kids are all asleep, the presents are all wrapped and waiting under the Christmas tree for tomorrow morning's unveiling. Christmas is a special time of year but there's no doubt it's the kid factor that makes it that much more fun. Many of the young adults I drove home in the cab tonight were ambivalent about Christmas, but with kids in the house there is always extra excitement and expectation. They all know already what their "main" presents are, but there should still be a few surprises for them, and maybe even for me too! I got Carolyn something she doesn't know about, and I know she'll like it. Pictures tomorrow!

Sport Boy and I went to see Charlotte's Web this afternoon and both loved it, it's a really sweet kid's movie, based on a classic children's book. Sport Boy gave it 4 1/2 stars out of 5. (I gave it 4!)

Well, no doubt the kids will be up early in the morning so I better get some sleep now in preparation!

Merry Christmas everyone.
Happy Jesus' Birthday.

G'day Marcus,

Thanks for sharing your life this year, often in a most entertaining way. I've enjoyed "getting to know you" through these pages.

All the best wishes to you and your family for Christmas and the new year ahead.
